Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ignited a firestorm on social media this week after she accused Ben Shapiro of "catcalling" for offering a large sum of money to her charity of choice to debate him.

Now, just one day after she claimed she doesn't owe a "response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions," Ocasio-Cortez is being exposed for hypocrisy.

What's going on?

Turns out, Ocasio-Cortez also demanded that someone debate her. In May, she posted a tweet claiming her "opponent seems to be avoiding a debate, and isn’t acknowledging me."

The tweet was referring to Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), whom Ocasio-Cortez defeated in June for the Democratic nomination in New York's 14th congressional district.

To be expected, social media had a field day with the tweet, which seemingly cast Ocasio-Cortez's "catcalling" allegations in a hypocritical light.

What was the response?

The irony of Ocasio-Cortez's debate challenge was widely mocked. Many wondered whether her debate challenge was also "catcalling."

Hot Air's Jazz Shaw:

Conservative Glenn Reynolds:

"Lol but you won’t debate @benshapiro ????" one person wrote in response to the tweet.

"Boy, this aged well. Pretty sure you'd be flipping your lid if @benshapiro stopped by your office and stared inside," another said.
